My name is Bea, and I am Clinical Psychologist and Counsellor, registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Conselho Regional de Psicologia (CRP- Brazil), and abide by their codes of ethical standards and confidentiality.
I have a degree in Clinical Psychology from Sao Paulo State University (UNESP), and a Post Graduate Diploma (PGDip) in Psychotherapy from the University of Essex. I have worked in hospitals with clients facing life-threatening illnesses, in mental health settings, and in private practice, both in Brazil and in England.
I provide compassionate care and a safe space for clients to express their emotions and feelings in their therapeutic process. Mental health issues can have a profound impact on our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. We all have mental health, and what affects our daily lives varies between each of us. The important thing to remember is that support is available, and we’re not alone in our journey.
My approach is focused on a strengths-based, client-centred perspective. I draw my practice based on the psychodynamic approach. Here we explore some of the common types of mental health concerns, including general information, signs and symptoms, treatment options, self-care and how therapy can help.
My specialty involves clients facing grief and loss, relationship and self-esteem issues, life transitions, disordered eating as well as anxiety and depression. I am also an LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapist.
As an immigrant in the UK, I am aware of the challenges one can face when moving to a different country, culture and language, therefore I offer sessions in English and in Portuguese.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me before booking an appointment – it will be good to hear from you!
